“I Don’t Care if I Get Arrested. I’m Going to Save This Baby”

In September 2014, Angela Radtke saw a one-year-old baby boy in a hot car parked in an H-E-B grocery store parking lot in San Antonio, Texas. H-E-B staff used the loudspeaker to try to find the baby’s parents, but no one responded, so Ms. Radtke used a tire iron to break the front windshield so she could crawl through it and rescue the baby. She said, “I don’t care if I get arrested. I’m going to save this baby.” She said, “It scraped up my arms and legs and back a little bit.” The baby had been in the car for at least 40 minutes, according to H-E-B video surveillance footage. The child was treated for dehydration at Methodist Children Hospital. The father of the one-year-old boy said that he had forgotten that the baby was in the car; the boy’s mother was at home. The father was arrested and charged with child endangerment.
